Enquire About This Course

This training course is designed to equip delegates with the skills and knowledge required to correctly prepare shipments of Dangerous Goods for Transport by Sea, which complies with the requirements of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Sea.

This course is intended for shipper’s or staff from shipping departments or those personnel responsible for the transportation of dangerous goods by sea.

Certificates may be re-validated by attending a Dangerous Goods by Air Re-validation course (one days, including exam).

This is essentially a condensed version of the full 2 day course. It is only available to students who have previously completed a full Dangerous Goods by Sea course and require a revalidation course (which we recommend every two years).

For those with DG experience but not regularly involved with shipping dangerous goods we would recommend attending the full 2 day course.

During the course, delegates are loaned a copy of the IMDG Codes and the session concludes with a written examination which currently has a minimum pass mark of 80%.

A certificate is issued confirming successful completion of the exam.
